Internet advertising

On the Website, FireFinch displays interest-based advertising using information you make available to us when you interact with the Website, content, or services. Interest- based ads, also sometimes referred to as personalised or targeted ads, are displayed to you based on information from activities such as purchasing on the Website, visiting websites that contain our content or ads, interacting with our online tools or using our payment services.

We do not provide any personal information to advertisers or to third party websites that display our interest-based ads. However, advertisers and other third parties (including the ad networks, ad-serving companies, and other service providers they may use) may assume that users who interact with or click on a personalised ad or content are part of the group that the ad or content is directed towards (for example, users in a particular geographical area or users who bought or browsed for classical music). Also, some third parties may provide us information about you (such as demographic information or websites where you have been shown ads) from offline and online sources that we may use to provide you more relevant and useful advertising.

Third party advertisers or advertising companies working on their behalf sometimes use technology to serve the advertisements that appear on  the Website directly to your browser. They automatically receive your IP address when this happens. They may also use cookies to measure the effectiveness of their advertisements and to personalise advertising content. We do not have access to or control over cookies or other features that advertisers and third party websites may use, and the information practices of these advertisers and third party websites are not covered by our Privacy Policy. Please contact them directly for more information about their privacy and cookie policies and their practices.

We offer you choices about receiving interest-based ads from us. You can choose not to receive interest-based ads from us. You will still be able to see these ads but they will not be personalised. You may modify the settings in most browsers to notify you when you receive a new cookie or disable cookies altogether. Please note that if you choose to disable some categories of cookies that we use, you may experience reduced functionality or be prevented from using the Website altogether.
